ArcEditor is a different product so I am going to remove that tag and add arcgis-server which should help funnel it to people with that expertise. – PolyGeo Jun 12 '13 at 8:57

Q2: The Editor component works together with ArcGIS Server and/or ArcGIS Online. Typically you set up your symbology etc in ArcMap, then publish it as a Feature Server that can be edited.


In addition, in your API application you can overwrite that symbology if you want to as well.

Q1: Yes, it is possible to create your own Editor as well and there is even a sample for that at However, I would suggest first looking at the ready to use Editor component. You can customize, through skinning, both the Editor component it self as well as the different components that it is made up of.

For more info on the Editor component, see the Concept page at and the API Reference at

Note that the link you shared was to an older API version. The latest version is always available at
